This is an easy and level walk around North Acton Playing Fields. One circuit should take 20 minutes.


From the Tennis Centre Sports Shop or the information board walk north along Eastfields Road, but inside the park, past the entrance to the tennis courts. Go past the pavilion, and at the corner of the park turn left along the orange hoggin path. At the next corner go outside the park (as there is no path inside the park), and walk down the pavement of Westfields Road. After the building called Westfield Lodge, cut back into the park and walk down the path that's parallel to the road. After the playground, turn left, and this path will take you back to your starting point. Do another two circuits to make up an hour's walk.
